XFX 6870 Black Edition (Dual Fan) vs Inno3D GTX 560 Ti OC vs GTX 570 vs 6950
H.A.W.X. 2 – DirectX 11
HAWX 2 was recently released for PC and makes significant use of Tessellation as well as being a DirectX 11 title.
Testing was performed at 1920×1080 with 8x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering. All in game settings were at their maximum level.
We are using the retail version of HAWX 2 for our testing and a section of real world gameplay rather than the benchmark which was released by Ubisoft in advance of the games release. With all detail levels set to their maximum and tessellation on we see that this is a game where AMD continue to underperform and interestingly this is despite some significant optimisations to Tessellation in their most recent drivers. Performance has increased on 6800/6900 series cards but not enough to bring it up to the level of the GTX cards.
